When it comes to industries that expect to do a lot of IT hiring in 2017, healthcare is at the top of nearly everyone's list. Reed said that many healthcare firms are particularly interested in hiring security professionals. Patient data is highly sensitive, and healthcare organizations must meet strict compliance regulations when it comes to protecting that data. In addition, recent news about data breaches has companies in many different industries, including healthcare, more concerned than ever about IT security.
Reed added that many healthcare facilities also are in the process of modernizing their networking and telecommunications equipment.
